Losing Hitchens Makes Me Sad

Graydon Carter’s VF Memoriam

Toronto Public Library has a good obituary with some links to his works.

His last piece in Vanity Fair:

I feel my personality and identity dissolving as I contemplate dead hands and the loss of the transmission belts that connect me to writing and thinking.


It goes without saying that this man could write and speak like very few others. There’s lots being posted upon his death, but I like to think back to how he always had the balls to say outrageous things, like Why Women Still Aren’t Funny. This man made me think, and laugh.
